Sure... we can go through the details off-line, but basically just:
1) archive the stuff you want to keep
2) build a new disklabel w/ larger values for sectors/track and tracks/cylinder.
The ones I suggested before might work reasonably well.
3) apply that disklabel to raid0
4) newfs /dev/rraid0e
5) copy the data back on...
